BooHoo the poor Casinos aren't making enough money. What a joke. If they can serve 24hrs/day than all restaurants and stores should be allowed to serve/sell 24 hrs. Change the law? Fine, go ahead, but no special treatment for the casinos.

Let me see if I understand correctly:

The Casino wants to extend drinking hours as to take advantage of a person that will has an alcohol induced mood disorder?

In other words, the disinihibition, poor judgement, impaired memory and poor coordination that comes with consuming alcohol (very similar to DSM Mood Disorders) is a condition the casino and state expect gamblers to be in when decidingf how much money to lose against already stacked odds?

Souns like an American With Disabilities issue to me! Surprised the ACLU isn't all over this one!

Let's just admit they need drunks that are too impaired NOT to waste their cash in order to survive.

What losers are these?

More vice, I say! Casinos are proof that some people can't part with their money fast enough. It's a tax on stupidity. This is a big story,people needing more liquor. I'm going back to help my son round up extra non perishable food items for the local shelter. That's a real need.

I agree, but lets not get to greedy. Since, the Indians are opening the door for the state to get their hands on more money ..... Jodi should go for IT.

The real boozers just hide a flask in their coat/jacket and sneak sips in the bathroom between rounds at the slot machines...

They can't pony up the $8 for the drinks at the casino bar, and the free drinks are too watered down for 'em anyways.

You must have serious issues if you want to get alcohol 24 hours a day anywhere. Makes me feel safe knowing this and you're on the roads driving......

It sounds like you morons want to smoke some weed on the ride home from the casino after you're all likkered up. I'm sure your house will soon be in foreclosure if it isn't already.

Who cares, you arent forcing you to drink when gambling, if you get toasted and gamble away your life savings its your own damn fault not the casinos.

You'd think people would stop and reconsider their lives if they are drinking and gambling in the wee hours....

That must be a miserable existence.

Connecticut only gets dwindling slots revenue. Thry now cater to other games and pay nothing!..They pump Oxygen to keep people awake...Establish a Toll Road to access Indian Casino's. New Jersey get the proerty and toll roads Direct. Even 2 Brain Cells Rell can see this. Maybe not.

I just returned from a week in Atlantic City and it was a ghost town. Extending the serving hours at the CT casinos won't change slot revenues. It will only produce drunker drunks.

Casino's are the trailer trash of CT. They need to put police at every exit with breathalyzers.

Well, knowing the resident gambling addict at work who owns nothing more than she did at age 16, can't take care of her own children and repeatedly misses work to go gambling - I'd say they have a quaranteed 50+ K from at least one nut! How many nuts like her do you think there are in this state? many..........
